Pearl Harbor

Today is the 76th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Just in case anyone is interested.

Ironic that the Japanese are now one of our greatest allies.

It's like some scrawny insecure dude picks a fight with someone bigger than himself, and the big guy punches him way harder than he should have and feels bad, so he buys the manlet a beer and 10 years later they're best friends.

Truly the greatest love story.

A nation does not have permanent friends or enemies, it merely has permanent interests.

Perhaps. But of all the nations in the world, the UK and Portugal have been great friends and allies longer than they have with any other nations. Over 200 years at least. IIRC?

Of course the eternal Anglo doesn't believe in allies.

The Soviets were not our allies. Just an enemy of my enemy type situation.

Stalin said the US Canada and UK plotted to have millions of Russians die while we sat in England waiting for the Soviets to shed the blood.
